The Gentle Swallow is where Stan's CIA double Bill takes Francine to dinner in "It's Good to Be the Queen". Francine was the Homecoming Queen at Jefferson High School, but when they open the class time capsule at the reunion and find two uncounted votes for Betty Sue, giving her the title, Francine takes it in stride. Stan however, is upset that he won't get to dance with the homecoming queen and dumps Francine for Betty Sue. To avoid upsetting Francine, Stan arranges for Bill to take Francine out to The Gentle Swallow for dinner. To Bill's horror, Francine decides to go to the reunion dance after all. Francine finds both Stan and Bill and shoots Bill. Stan and Francine share a reunion dance in the Stay Inn parking lot.
